While I don’t think this is a complete disaster, I am still calling it a dud. I might recreate bits of this in the future, but with differences, making this day’s outfit a learning experience.
It wasn’t quite what I had in mind when I first planned my clothes for that day. I had other ideas in mind, ones with much more color. There were some issues with socks and I couldn’t find my tights, and then I went through 4 pair of shoes… I threw on what I had, and hoped for the best.
These earrings are great, but by the time I put them on, I was a little cranky-pants, and didn’t want to try to figure out necklaces.
Socks and boots! I think I would have been more pleased had I worn knee or thigh socks or tights instead of scrunchy socks. I picked up these boots when I bought my not-flat flats last month. Nearly twenty years ago, I begged and pleaded with my parents to buy me a pair of Dr. Martens. My mother, to her credit, made an attempt by getting me no-name combat boots for a ridiculously low price at our local Forman Mills. They lasted a surprisingly long time for knock-offs.
